    I've been shortlisted for a post at a PRU and have an
    interview this week.I didn't really expect this as I only have
    experience in mainstream (although my current school is quite
    challenging). What sort of thing are they likely to ask me? And what
    sorts of things should I be looking out for?
    Finally, they haven't asked me to teach - which I found quite surprising. Surely they won't spring a lesson on me unannouced?!
    I would LOVE to teach at this place so any pointers you might be able to give me would be much appreciated!

    Whoops! Didn't see your earlier post re. replying. Have fallen at first post... Not good auspice.
    Hope you have a great visit with Theo Senior.

    This is where I have to say that I do not know - am no expert on this, and you should know more than me if you've applied for it.
    Obviously challenging behaviour, use of restraint, what disciplinary policy do you use - remember to say that you would need to consult their policies in certain situations if they ask you.
    Shouldn't think they would spring it, as planning is super important. You might get to chat to a few students, though.
    And Theo Senior is now fine, thanks.
    Best of luck - hope to get a new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job!
